Saturday was a beautiful sunny day in Cowley for the Rocky Mountain Invitational, and the spring-like weather inspired the Powell High School track and field teams to their strongest showing this season.

After an 11-2 steamrolling at the hands of the top-ranked Worland Warriors last month, Powell High School boys soccer coach Jeff Dent promised the teams’ next matchup would be much more competitive.

Still seething after a 5-0 dismantling at home at the hands of the Powell High School girls soccer team last month, the Worland Lady Warriors came to Panther Stadium Monday looking for a little payback.

The trees in our community have become an interesting topic of discussion of late, ranging from replacing trees along the canal on Coulter Avenue following last summer’s median removal to the impending demise of about 21 trees lining Absaroka Street as part of the street widening project. (Those living on Absaroka Street can find solace in that the trees removed will eventually be replaced.)

A Jaya Smith goal with just 11 seconds to play in the first overtime period gave the Powell High School girls soccer team a 1-1 tie against No. 2-ranked Douglas.

The last time the Powell High School boys soccer team squared off against Douglas, the Bearcats used the “boot and chase” strategy to great effect, earning a 3-2 win at the Todd Malonek Southwest Invitational in Green River.

With seven first-place finishes and a slew of second and thirds, the Powell High School boys and girls track teams continue to improve, showing up strong at Thursday’s D & D Invitational in Worland.

After a search failed to find a permanent replacement for former Lady Trapper volleyball coach Shaun Pohlman, Northwest College has named former Pohlman assistant Bethany Conde as interim head coach for the 2018 season. The position will be reopened at season’s end.

With 40 kids from Powell Middle School and around 20 from Powell High School braving windy, chilly temps to participate in the spring tennis season, the future looks sunny for the PHS tennis program.

Showing an eye for recruiting international talent, Northwest College men’s soccer coach Stan Rodrigues has signed two players from Brazil — Matheus Macedo and Rennan Labanca — to roam the pitch for the Trappers next season.
